look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a Duvel tulip glass. Bottled on 07/22/13.
Appearance: Pours a very hazy golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Huge three finger off white head with good retention. Leaves a decent amount of lacing.
Smell: A bright, yeasty, and fruity Belgian style aroma with big hints of spices, funk, and fruit. Upfront Belgian yeast with hints of clove, peppers, farmhouse funk, and some Brett funk. Fruit hints of pear, apple, banana, white grape, lemon, and orange. Some hints of wood and rustic leather. Bready malt hints of biscuit, grains, straw, rye, and cracker. Sweet hints of candied sugar. Some earthy hop hints as well. A pretty solid Saison aroma.
Taste: Like the nose hints at, a yeasty, funky, and fruity Belgian farmhouse style taste with good notes of spice and fruit. Upfront Belgian yeast with notes of farmhouse funk, clove, peppers, and Brett funk. Fruity taste of green apple, pear, banana, white grapes, orange, and lemon. Note of wood and some subtle rustic leather notes. Sweet taste of candied sugar. Bready malt presence with notes of grains, biscuit, straw, hay, rye, and cracker. Subtle earthy hops in the background. A very good Belgian style taste.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a high level of carbonation. Spicy, juicy, and somewhat prickly with a drying finish. Very smooth with a well hidden alcohol presence.
Overall: A very good take on a Saison/Farmhouse ale. Great blend of yeast, spices, and dry fruit flavors. The subtle rye and Brett add a nice kick.
